I just noticed my front left tire is about an inch further back than the front right tire (distance from tire to wheel well)... can I take my car to a tire shop, or does a BMW dealership have to do the alignment? What am I looking at paying for this?

that doesn't sound like an alignment problem.. that sounds like a bent control arm.

Bent control arm? What is that, and how would that happen? And is it expensive to fix?

The ride is fine, if I let go of the steering wheel it stays in a straight line.. but someone pointed it out and now I'm worried.
